, 63% has already voted. in florida 53%. iowa 44%. and ohio 31%. john dickerson and i were talking about this earlier today. we could have most of the results already by the people that have come out early and that's why the campaigns spent so much time on getting out the vote early, this ground game on these early votes. >> pelley: we'll come back to you early and often. john dickerson is our cbs news political director. john is going to be showing us the various ways that the candidates can get to the 270 electoral votes necessary to twin presidency. john? >> well, first, scott, let's follow up on what bob was saying. we're going to dispatch with 41 of the states, the majority of the country cbs estimates based on the polling that those states are either going to go to barack obama or to mitt romney. that gives barack obama a start where he's likely to get 237 electoral votes, mitt romney is likely to get 191 electoral votes. so here we are at the beginning of the evening, nothing has been called, it's all possibility. so what is the easiest past for each candidate to get to that
, not only virginia but also florida in the southeast to be competitive in this race tonight, but that is not enough. as we move to the midwest he's going to have po pick off one of the key states in barack obama's fire wall, either ohio or wisconsin because you see what happens right there, if the president gets both ohio and wisconsin he only five votes away from an electoral lock. >> well, this is the difficult route that br has. he has to take the atlantic coasts sta s states and move i into the midwest and start picking off midwestern states. early in the night if he sees trouble in those, it's going to be a very difficult night for mitt romney. he has to win those three atlantic coast states. >> if he doesn't, if the president wins any one if we go back to the what if board in the middle. any one of these in play where he's ahead or tied he has 270 electoral votes. >> let's head off to richmond, virginia, with amy klobuchar robach. i know you're at a dnc headquarters. >> reporter: i'm wearing purple. it was completely coincidental but very appropriate because this is a

monolithic voting group. vicky, i want to turn to you, the florida numbers are particularly fascinating approximate this. we were looking at a recent poll from the miami herald that looks at sort of obama and romney support. when you include cuban americans in the counting, president obama is leading by a slight margin, 51%. if, however, you look at it with cuban americans excluded from it, then all of a sudden president obama it leading at about 65%. obviousli obviously, that's an krags indication that you end up with national origin and other issues. >> i think florida is a microcosm for that diversity. in south florida, the miami area, you have a cuban american vote that's very republican. regardless of the generation. then you go into the i-4 corridor and you see the explosion of the puerto rican vote. interestingly enough, you have democrats but also a growing number of independents. then if you go even further, you have a smattering of mexican americans. what is the trend for the future there. it's not mexican americans in texas. it's going to be puerto ricans and cuban americans.
. with the help of the people in florida that is exactly what is going happen. >> the vice presidential candidates are also hitting the trail. vice president joe biden stopping in virginia and paul ryan will be stopping in colorado and nevada and ohio. international polls say 49 percent of voters support the president. it is all about the electoral college and the 270 delegates. the states to watch tomorrow evening are going to be virginia and florida ohio and north carolina wisconsin and nevada. we'll have extensive coverage of the election and all of the propositions of the presidential election and the local races starting at 8:00 when the polls close. you guessed at today at our web site @ kron4 .com as well as our 247 news channel. >> enjoy it warm weather last because tuesday is gonna be the last day of record-breaking numbers. i roof cam shows in downtown san francisco is a clear start to the morning. there is some ground fog in the north bay with temperatures sitting in the '50s. into the afternoon sunny and warm conditions were talking '80s not only am land but potentially along the coast
, virginia and ohio. they feel ok about florida and virginia. but a sign of trouble. jonathan martin is hearing the margins for him in chesterfield county just outside of richmond, where he is doing well, it is not good enough. if he's losing there, it's a sign of trouble in the state. in ohio, romney is worried about the midwest. wisconsin, and ohio, real nervousness. in the obama war room, confidence. exit polls looked good for john kerry. there are jokes about president kerry. but their models are coming in. the vote is coming in how they expected. >> one state declared is indiana, which obama won and it is called for romney. it shows the map is smaller this time, the map is smaller. some of the exit polling looks good, some does not, with what people think of health care and the role of government. people ask me, who should i vote for? what will they do? i have no clue. none of the candidates talked about what they'll do. it goes with what john wrote, about how small the campaign is in what is a huge moment. when you think of what is happening with our debt. trillion-dollar defic
to the state of florida on wednesday. it's expected to hit nework and new jersey. >> new orleans wins at home. philadelphia needed a win. didn't get it. >> are your hometown chicago bears good enough to win the super bowl? >> yes, they are. >> you have a favorite team? >> the patriots, and i take personal full responsibility for their two super bowl wins. >> is it true you did some shows with no audience last week? >> yes. >> what was that like? >> about like tonight. >> and all that matters. >> it's a couple hours off from work tomorrow. >> on "cbs this morning." >> did you go to the polls and vote yet? >> yes. >> was it exciting? >> it was a blast. captioning funded by cbs >>> welcome to "cbs this morning." this is the day when voters choose the next president of the united states. the traditional first votes have already been counted in new hampshire in the tiny village of dixville notch. president obama got five votes and governor mitt romney got five. and the outcome is expected to be just as close nationwide. >> that's right. three new polls of likely voters have just come out. one of t
this message. >> woodruff: but the romney campaign also began airing a spanish-language ad in florida tying obama to latin american dictators hugo chavez and fidel castro. >> we are america's women. >> woodruff: and american future fund, a super pac supporting romney is running ads targeting women in michigan and pennsylvania, states considered safely democratic. as you can see on the "newshour's" vote 2012 map center" there are seven states currently considered by the associated press to be true toss ups: nevada, colorado, iowa, ohio, virginia, florida and new hampshire. it shows each candidate's quickest potential path to 270 electoral votes. including one scenario giving president obama a path to victory, winning nevada and ohio, to get to 277 electoral votes. for mitt romney the path could also lead through ohio, and blanketing the south, to get to 281 in a different scenario. and there are also several potentials for a tie. this one shows the president losing nevada but winning ohio, to get to 269 for both candidates. and late today, the "newshour" got word that romney will make a last
to sweep the whole east coast, doesn't he, at the beginning of the night? florida, north carolina and new hampshire, as well? >> yeah, he's got to sweep all the states that touch the atlantic ocean really to have a chance in this race. and i think virginia will tell us a lot. it's going to tell us if this night ended early for mitt romney or if we're in for a long night. virginia will tell us that. >> that's right, but if he wins, he still has to do well in the midwest. win either ohio or wisconsin. if we give that to president obama, where he's ahead. he is just five votes short of the 270 electoral votes he needs. all that leaves is nevada, colorado or iowa. the president ahead or tied in all three of the states. >> that's the situation that mitt romney is in. it is, he's in a very narrow path to the electoral college victory. and exactly as you laid it out. it's as if he has to draw an inside straight in this campaign in order to win tonight. he has to do all those things and the path is still narrow to win this. >> matthew dowd, we'll see you tonight. >> all right, gentlemen. >>> and
reelection with 303 electoral votes with florida's 29 still undetermined and over 50% of the popular vote. the national journal hosted several panel discussions breaking down the road to results and looking at the implications for national politics and the congressional agenda. >> it turned out not to be as long night as people expected and we're going to talk about that today and why and look forward to how the president to make go forward from this victory which think is safe to say it was quicker and bigger than many people expected. would you like to tell us how this happened and -- why this happened and how? >> it was bigger than we expected. he really swept the battleground states. the only states that he lost that he had won in 2008, was north carolina which he had won by 14,000 votes in 2008. it was considered a fluke. what that tells us is that the set of assumptions that the obama campaign was operating on was correct. and a set of assumptions that the romney campaign was operating on was not. it's sort of make sense in a way sense obama's theory about the campaign turned out to
a i vote sticker. thankou y will. the time --we will be back. the importance a cycle ohio and florida here's a look at orlando on the left-hand side. on the right we have blue-ohio. you can see the long line that voters are facing. in many precincts they have to wait from one to four hours to cast their votes. we're lucky here in california the voting going smoothly. so for our weather is great. we have no sense to deal with. power outages flooding are any glitches that cause the polling places to back up. we will keep you posted throughout the morning on election night with the results. the results will be coming into kron 4 started to 8:00 p.m. and will last until the results comment. you can't see results on our website www.kron4.com facebook and whether we will be back with more in a moment. we have our kron for political analyst ykis. is its new soon to say that- michael yaki. the numbers will come in very fast. is possible you can see certain trends. first states will come in will be on the eastern seaboard in hampshire, virginia and florida. that will really be whether or not i
and assuming he does that and is not decide to go for the budget, it will probably be bill nelson from florida who just wondering reelection. but here is my conspiracy- minded way is going on -- let's say ron wind and decided he really want a budget and not one energy, who would be chairman? mary landrieu -- a complete nightmare for the democrats -- coming from an oil-producing state she is really not in line with most of the party on the issues. i had a conversation with a democratic aide not to long ago where i basically said, so, you guys will do everything you can to make sure it does not happen, right? even if patty murray decides not to take budget, you r will ron widen stay there -- their answer was, we do not think we will get to that point. which is estimated will do everything they can to prevent mary landrieu from taking the gavel. but she is close. and any other on the republican side. is it the republican leadership lansing at the thought about new ranking republican member is doing damage to the agenda? chuck grassley, inside -- installed judiciary, and orrin hatch? >> i think bo
electoral votes to 206 for romney. florida is still too close to call. as predicted, the popular vote is much closer. about 50% of americans voted for the president, while 48% chose romney. we have complete election coverage this morning, beginning with nancy cordes in chicago. she covered president obama's victory speech, which was just a few hours ago. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, norah and charlie. well, in the end, this race wound up just about exactly where the obama campaign had predicted it would, with the president sweeping almost every battleground state. today he returns to washington to begin the hard work of repairing frayed relationships with the other side after a bitter, sometimes petty campa n campaign. it was well after midnight when the president, vice president and their families hugged and waved to supporters from the stage at mccormick place after president obama declared victory. >> tonight, more than 200 years after a former colony won the right to determine its own destiny, the task of perfecting our union moves forward. >> this is a
. florida is still too close to call but the result there won't make a difference. melanie is live now with the latest on all of this. it was a late night. >> reporter: it was a late night. yesterday, it certainly didn't seem like it was a sure thing. so how was he able to put it together? he was able to emerge victorious by holding on to his key constituencies. and exit polls show most agree the economy is not in good shape. voters apparently didn't blame the president for that. it was after 1:00 in the morning when president obama strolled on to the stage to signed, sealed, delivered. he told the country has made gains and held hope for a brighter future. >> it doesn't matter who you are or where you come from or what you look like, or where you love. it doesn't matter whether you are black or white or hispanic or asian or native american or young or old or rich or poor, abled, disabled, gay or straight. you can make it here in america. >> the president also thanked vice president joe biden who he called america's happy warrior for all the hard work on the campaign trail. >> differen
important ohio or florida are and when those vote counts change. another very interesting thing we've done with this map center is load it full of different types of data that you can take a look at. for example, here are the electoral results in historical context. do you think tonight will be a landslide? it's nothing compared to 1972 where mcgovern got 17 electoral votes and nixon got 520. we also have, for example, unemployment data. you've seen the campaigns talk about unemployment over and over again. and what you can do on this map is go ahead and take a look. you can see california has 9.7% unemployment. nevada has 11.2%. florida has 8.6%. you can go dive in on a state-by-state level as well. finally we've also got a lot of demographic data in here. this, for example, is a breakdown as how the country looks by ethnicity. the more pink, the larger hispanic population. new mexico has 46%. texas has 37%. these are just some of the data sets. whether it's demographic or economic or historical or a little bit of context that you like from the newshour so much. we'll be back. >> ifill: w
-old african-american, killed in florida, tragically. two weeks after the incident, there was no media coverage of all. a private injustice. the parents start a petition, and then it goes viral. the importance is not just the individual acts of arresting his killer in prosecuting him, but the public. the result, the awareness of the tragic situation of young african-americans not being treated fairly in the justice system or the "stand your ground" laws, where you can almost impunitively shoot someone. that is some of the really exciting things we see. >> in trayvon martin's case, clearly there was an impact, but they were not waiting. they were in there pretty soon, on the case. what i want to ask you -- do you find a difference in the way that companies -- you have a lot of petitions aimed at companies that do specific things. obviously, some have had more political implications. is there a difference in response between business institutions and political institutions? >> politicians are much less responsive. it is easier to change your detergent than your congressman. i tell that to my cong
turning out. the president won the cuban vote. the first time infer florida. you saw young voters actually exceeding in most states their turnout from four years ago to the surprise of most analyst. you saw african turn out even though the excitement was four years ago, you saw a real determination there to support the president and you saw african-american rise in a lot of places. that is getting a lot of attention as it should. you have to understand electorate to understand presidential politics. but the president carried most of the key swush suburban counties t. states that are the four heaviest in white population the president won all four of them. so it may be convenient to say we drove good turnout in the latino and african-american community but it's more complex because the president won swing suburban voters and women voters all over the country. presidential campaigns are complicated t. pursuit of 270 electoral votes is complicated. how we won 332 is complicated. it's not just one thing and we'll talk a lot about what that means for politics going forward. one thing i've learn
on doors >> i think that is a good thing. the people in ohio, virginia, florida, nevada -- they took this election enormously seriously, understood the unique role they had to play. voters in battleground states understand they have a unique role a lot of us the citizens united to enjoy because they are not and state that will determine the president. >> the super pac's dynamic this time was obviously new and unprecedented. you had senate candidates -- sherrod brown in ohio had $40 million spent against him by super pac's. we had in the last week of our campaign $100 million spent against the president. that is more than the mccain campaign spent in its entirety. remarkable thing. a lot of senate candidates still one. but in house races it had an impact. barack obamashrod brown, governors -- ey have definition. the spending is a little less nefarious. it's still tough to deal with, but you are not somebody who is now and then somebody drops $4 million on youhead will have an impact. we have never seen spending like this. there is a term in politics called gross rating points, the amo
welcome from the state of florida, senator marco rubio. >> thank you. i love being in ohio. my refrigeratothis is just liken florida. my refrigerator may be in florida. [laughter] our next president and vice president will be mitt romney and paul ryan. there is a lot to say. we know what this election is about. what i love most about the presidential election is that it reminds us what is at stake. it reminds us how special and unique the american story has been. there has never been a place like this in all the history of the world. the drop in history of mankind, almost everyone has been poor and powerless. the same people kept winning and everyone else was under them until america. america change that because we believe that every single human being is born with certain rights that come from god and not from the government or the president. [cheers and applause] that is what is at stake in this election right now. before as is a clear choice between very -- did a very different visions. one threat is to rob us of the many things that make this different and specials. the roa

to chicago comes after two days of intense campaigning in the battleground states of ohio, florida, wisconsin, new hampshire and colorado. his tour ended with an emotional campaign speech in iowa. >>> reporter: president obama is spending election day in chicago. he cast his ballot there during early voting almost two weeks ago. the president wrapped up his campaign in des moines last night just steps away from his iowa headquarters during his first presidential bid in 2008. president obama made one final plea for votes in the critical battleground state. >> after all the months of campaigning, after all the rallies, after the millions of dollars of ads, it all comes down to you. it's out of my hands. >> reporter: president obama plans to continue his election day tradition of playing basketball with friends. i'm bigad shaban in chicago. >>> i'm randall pinkston in boston. underscoring just how close this election is expected to be, the first town of the nation to vote ended in a tie. >> this has never happened before in dixville. we have a tie. >> reporter: margaret dixon, new dixville notch

, and if he wins virginia, florida, ohio, colorado or new hampshire, he'll be the next president. i think the president at this moment has a little bit better chance in the electoral college. >> i can't offer to shave my mustache when we win ohio, but i think that will happen. but i think in virginia you'll get a close race, one way or the other. i think you've seen tim kaine pull away from allen and made the case for himself as tough decisions he's had to make as governor. that will be a key senate race to watch, not just for where the commonwealth goes, but could control the senate. i think that's trending in a good direction for tim kaine. >> let me get your thoughts as well, looks like if you look at the poll numbers, kaine has pulled ahead of allen. do you think he has a shot? >> if obama wins virginia two or 3-points lease likely to -- he's likely to drag mr. allen across. allens a polls say he's up one. i think this will be a nail biter race like the presidential race. i think it could be a possible split. if there was a split in the vote, i think the better vote would be romney/ka
